    Request to be added

    Hello. I am a long time player of Terraria Desktop, and I have much experience with it. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help update the wiki with new and changed items and features from the 1.4 update. I have already been working on updating the upcoming features with new information, and I would be glad to continue to quickly bring out accurate update information.

    Request to be added

    Hi, I'd like to be added to the editors list. I've been helping around the wiki recently creating item pages, copyediting, and reporting vandalism. I play Desktop and have basic familiarity with the source code, so I can pull up information about item functionality, vendor sales, etc without too much trouble. On the wikicode side, I've learned how to use a good number of the standard templates+infoboxes and I'm hoping to pick up more through practice. You can check my contributions page to see where I've helped out, or contact me in the Discord under the same username. Cheers! Breathlessblizzard (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    I've added you. Thank you so much for your help :) – Ferretwings (talk) 23:06, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added

    Hello! I'd like to be added to the editors list. I mostly play mobile, but can readily test pretty much anything on the Console version (latest version, Xbox One), and will sometimes be able to test some Desktop things. I'll hopefully be able to be editing a lot more actively, and am currently working to achieve consistency, especially with the flood of 1.4 articles. Thanks for your consideration! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 17:57, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added

    Hi! I'd like to be added to the editor's list. I have (what I'd like to think) an extensive knowledge of most Terraria Desktop version mechanics, as well as features and content. I've joined pretty recently in order to help with 1.4 content additions, and I helped to start adding happiness quotes for the happiness quotes project to most NPCs, as well as preparing to start the DPS project (to find the average DPS of weapons). Thank you for reading, no hard feelings if I don't make it. DanZeMan (talk) 12:49, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added

    Hello, my name is Trialsphere, I am constant player of the game and have over 340 hours on Nintendo Switch. I know the game mechanics well, tend to recognize glitches fairly quickly when they pop up, and know most of the tips or tricks a player might need. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help add information that might have been missed on pages and help the terraria community as much as I can. I thank you for your time and consideration. Trialsphere (talk) 17:41, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

    Added you to the list. --Eraloiz (talk) 09:49, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

    Request to be added

    I would like to be added to the editor's list. I have a switch so I can make contributions to the wiki based on switch related info, and I have good hours to check what needs to be done. Also, one more thing I have to say is that I visit pages often to see what needs to be updated or to see if anyone has vandalized it, and report it or change it. Otherwise I just want to help keep the wiki running smoothly.

    "Old phone versions only" mark

    If there's "Old-Gen console only" and just "Console only" marks, how about "Old phone versions only"? By "old versions" I mean versions with exlusive mobs, bosses and items, because just like old-gen consoles versions, old mobile versions had a lot of unique content, and just like there's a big step between old and new Gen consoles, there's a bug step between old and new mobile versions.

    Does mobile not update automatically? Why would they be in the old content versions? --AmsterAlt (talk) 18:46, 6 January 2022 (UTC)

    Adding 'special seeds' to front page

    In the list on the front page of mechanics, it doesn't mention secret world seeds anywhere. But we have a nice hub for them, an infobox, and they're pretty cool. It might be worth adding to one of the areas on the front page. Mathbrush1 (talk) 20:58, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

    Couple of issues

    First off, I'm not sure why on mobile there's a bit of an overflow on the right side of the site, but whatever it is it does make scrolling a bit difficult. See here.

    Second, I'm not sure why you dragged the formerly unofficial Spanish wiki here. There is a lot of reminiscence of Fandom there, and I don't know if that is the whole plan here.

    In any case, congratulations! -- PanchamBro (talk • contributions) 07:14, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

    Adding an english translation for the chinese mobile version page

    I see no reason to not have a english translation for it, even if it's not relevant for those who speak english.

    In case you don't know what i'm talking about, it's this. -- AaadyB (talk) 00:43, 30 March 2022 (MST)

    The pet Companion Cube behaviour is also a reference to a GMod addon.

    Recently (like, right now) I watched a video of Endy about Garry's Mod Iceberg (the second one he made) and he talks about an addon for GMod that adds a "Perfectly Harmless Compaion Cube". Basicaly it's an Angel statue from Doctor Who, or that SCP that is realy famous : if you don't look at him he teleports, if he's too close while in that state of moving he'll oneshot you by "stabbing you with a knife". (as in play Counter Strike, because you are not facing him the Knife Cut with Right Click one shots) I even have creepy sounds when it enters moving mode, similar to how Companion Cube behaves in Lava in Terraria !

    I think ReLogic made a reference to that specific addon for the secret interraction in the dark, as in Terraria, unlike an FPS, as long as there is light you can always see the Cube, so to reference the not seeing it had to be in full darkness.

    The Steam Workshop of this addon is from March 19, 2013 tho note that there was other ways to share addons for GMod before the workshop was implemented, just saw the video but I think it would be neat to add that part of the reference wich fits soooooo perfectly with Terraria's Cube behaviour that it deserves to be included ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Néthéris (talk • contribs) at 09:00, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

    Time to make different themes from TCF?

    Maybe it's time to add new themes as promised? Blazerun19 (talk) 19:35, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

    Are the themes ready yet? Blazerun19 (talk) 23:49, 4 May 2022 (UTC)

    Please have a little patience. Westgrass already explained that this is no easy task. The entire styling codebase was tailored to the layout on Gamepedia/Fandom, so it requires a lot of effort to rework it. You can be sure that as soon as the option to switch to another theme is available, you'll be made aware of it. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 16:31, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
    I am a volunteer on Wiki. In real life, the company I worked for went out of business under the brunt of COVID. So it's tough for me right now. I need to spend more time and energy on making a life and/or job hunting. Therefore I have less time for wiki work, although theming project is progressing steadily. But it is a big project, I need to clean up all the css and re-reorganize them to fit the theming mechanism. So far, wiki interface has became fully responsive, and the theme switching mechanism itself is in place. Now I'm focus on cleaning up all css and make them into two different theme skins (Overworld and Hydra) to test theming system and make sure it works fine. The theming system will be released after this work is completed, and other more skins will continue to be developed after then. -- Westgrass (talk) 06:00, 6 May 2022 (UTC)

    Switch version

    Now that Nintendo Switch version Switch is all caught up to Xbox/PS, and DR is doing simultaneous content update releases, is there any reason to keep the Switch version differentiation in {{exclusive}} around? Or can it be disabled? --Eraloiz (talk) 09:14, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

    I know this would be hard work but perhaps merge them into a duel icon? Triplefun1 (talk) 16:07, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
    That's great news for our icon problem, I'm ok to merge it with the Console icon. I guess a temporary site banner (2 weeks / 1 month-long?) might be a good idea to inform the community of that change. Dinoxel (talk) 16:27, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
    Actually, "Console version" used to encompass the Switch entirely. This is even still stated on Terraria#Console version, which apparently hasn't been updated for quite some time: "On this wiki, the Xbox One Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch Nintendo Switch editions are referred to as the "Console version" and will be marked with Console version." So if we can be sure that Switch receives updates together with the others (can we? @Eraloiz you mentioned simultaneous releases and judging by the last two updates that's true, but is there maybe an official statement?), then I don't see a problem with going back to that and simply removing Switch from {{exclusive}}. A sitenotice might be a good idea; perhaps we can combine that with the potential tModLoader changes. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 22:37, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
    Here - Terraria 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 Out Now on Console & Mobile! "[...] This has been a new experience for the team - trying to release across 5 platforms at once - and we have learned a lot that we will apply moving forward to make things even more efficient. After all, if we are someday able to pull off Crossplay, this will be the way that all updates will have to work, right?" --Eraloiz (talk) 09:46, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
    Ah, perfect, thanks. Then I'm all for it. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 11:14, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

    Eye of Cthulhu (Phase 1).gif is missing a copyright

    so I found that File:Eye of Cthulhu (Phase 1).gif is missing a copyright. Is there a reason for that, or has it just gone un noticed? -user:Sirlance3000

    Looks like the user who uploaded it forgot to specify one. Thank you for pointing that out! --Eraloiz (talk) 00:30, 8 June 2022 (UTC)

    Version markings/denotations and the overall crowded feeling of icons as a whole.

    As one reads through the wiki, you may see several icons denoting platform-exclusive items. Seeing 4 platform icons next to each other is quite awkward and feels somewhat redundant to list all four. It would make more sense just to have 3 icons total—one for the Windows phone, one for Legacy editions, and one for DCMS, or Desktop-console-mobile-switch. This could be pulled off as there are no truly exclusive items between any of the DCMS platforms that could become problematic. As rarely will one find mention of Mods, lighting, or TShock in a vast majority of articles. It would perfect sense to add an icon to denote DCMS content rather than listing all four as individuals. When as we know, they will become one platform after the LOL Update, also known as the Labor of love. Perhaps this may warrant phrasing akin to the Bedrock edition as seen in Minecraft. It would be nice to see one dedicated icon for DCMS and one could hope that a Discussion may be brought to the attention of whoever may be charged with the creation of platform icons.

    Have a wonderful day Sallardon (talk) 02:27, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

    Hi, thanks for sharing your thought about this. We are already aware of the icons flood problem as it's been there for a couple of years now. It is planned to have only three icons on the wiki, one for DCMS, one for Old-gen Console, and one for 3DS. And probably an additional fourth one for the tModLoader version as it isn't developed by Re-Logic and won't profit from the Labor of Love update. However, as you mentioned, the DCMS versions don't share the same version yet, so DCMS icons are necessary at the moment. Dinoxel (talk) 16:14, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
    I completely agree; think something should be done about this. Maybe make PC (or DCMS) version a priority, and give the rest their own subsections, idk. Also, in some crafting recipes, where current and outdated content is grouped, this can cause confusion, especially for beginners Terrakota (talk) 17:18, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

    CS Trophy

    I want you to add the latest version of the achievements in the CS version (the main body, not the game)! Because the information on other sites is old and uncertain.

    I'm sorry it may be strange because it goes through the translation site (T_T)

    Hi - this isn't really the place to ask for modding help (I'd recommend joining the tModLoader Discord server), but you can take a look at ExampleMod's ExampleShield, which has all the code needed to do that. --Eraloiz (talk) 19:14, 7 July 2022 (UTC)

    TModLoader Items (+ eicon replacement)

    TModLoader adds a few extra items, such as the April Fools Joke, the Starting Bag, 1 developer vanity, and 10 patreon vanity sets. My question is; Should we document (i.e. make pages for) these items, instead of just putting it on the TModLoader page? The old tmodloader eicon/exclusive indicator has been replaced with a Legacy TModLoader icon, so I can't do much on my own, and that's why i've come here to ask for some opinions on if we should make pages for these or not.

    Another question to consider is if we should document the various Unloaded Items/Unloaded Tiles, as those are more dubious and less common to come by than these actual items. Adr451 (talk) 20:18, 12 July 2022 (UTC)

    To my mind, we shouldn't document any of tModLoader's own alterations to the game outside of its article. This wiki is still primarily about vanilla Terraria; third-party content usually has its own documentation somewhere else, e.g. on the mods wiki or a separate wiki. In the case of tModLoader, that would be the official wiki on GitHub. The only reason tModLoader is even (for now) part of the {{exclusive}} system here, if I remember correctly, is the considerable size of its playerbase and that it actually constitutes vanilla Terraria in large parts. In my view, the content about the rest, the non-vanilla parts, should be kept as brief as possible here and instead be documented in detail at the more appropriate location, the tModLoader wiki.
    In short: In my opinion no extra pages for TML items, rather mention them on tModLoader (at most; if necessary). They're third-party content, so they belong on their third-party wiki. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 00:09, 13 July 2022 (UTC)
